Already contacted Mark Serbu and if I can get 10 or more I can do them for $1,895.00 + S/H. Thats about $100 more than the Ferret Upper costs and a much better .50 rifle.

Does that stand for "Big Friggin Gun", or words close to that?

Something like that.

Just read an article on this weapon,
In G&A, and it sounds like a good deal. It does include an ejector, and held it's own against guns costing twice as much. The single drawback being light weight, which effects a bit more recoil.
As a **********n, I salute those taking this last chance to own the king of long distance shooters. Take some pics when ya go shooting it, will ya?

OK, I have 10 reconfirms and we are good to go. Just waiting on checks and money orders to arrive in the next few days. I will wait to process credit card orders until checks and money orders arrive. This way in the unlikely event people default on this deal credit card orders will not be processed a non refundable 4% charge.
When I have payments form those who confirmed the order I will prepay the order with Serbu. I will update here as new information is available.
If you wanted "in" but haven't replied to the confirmation email, you need to do so as soon as possible. If you never got the confirmation email contact me immediately by email, I don't want to leave anyone out and I haven't heard from a few people who wanted in.
As before any questions, commments or concerns please email me.
